Brief Description

The City of Mississauga Public Art Program invites professional Canadian artists or artist teams to submit proposals to create original artwork for Mississauga's downtown banners. Using photography as a medium, "Portrait of M" will highlight the cultural and demographic diversity of Mississauga and will seek to communicate the varied stories of its residents.

The banners will provide a vibrant visual presence in the City's downtown core from May to November 2018.
